Wajcman argues that the perception of technology as necessarily masculine is

AnswerEdit

Wajcman states that technology and society coevolve with each influencing the other. “Technological change is shaped by the social circumstances within which it takes place.” She provides several examples of how familiar artifacts, such as the microwave oven and the VCR, have been shaped by social values of the users of these devices. But she also argues that social scientists should recognize that technological artifacts are more than just the background context of human action; human sociotechnical practices are forms of power that expand and alter the character of human action itself.



Wajcman argues that the perception of technology as necessarily masculine is : because of women’s luck of technological skills, men’s domination of technology ( as an important source of their power) or technology itself is inscribed with gender power relations.Edit
